My name is Nattan Telmer. I'm a grade 10 student attending Mount Douglas Secondary School. Currently I am a competitive rower and spend a large portion of my time training. In the future I plan on entering an engineering school and becoming a material or chemical engineer. My inspiration for this years project came from my previous projects as they utilize the same devices. This experience allowed me to identify some problems which I could solve. I am very excited to continue my work and already have multiple ideas on what I can do to further improve Thermo-Electric Generators. I think that anyone who wants to work on a science fair project should start thinking about a concept long before the fair and write down all of their ideas because at least one of them will most likely be pretty good.

Defining Characteristics of Bismuth Telluride TEGs

Abstract:My project is about determining the faults with Thermo-Electric Generators (devices that turn a heat difference into electrical power). And then by analyzing these faults determine a way to improve the device. In my case I insulated them with Aerogel, a material which has half the conduction rate of air. By doing this I increased their output power therefore making them a more viable technology.
